The city is holding two Hanukkah menorah lightings Thursday night.
The annual lighting of the menorah on the West Haven Green, followed by the lighting of the menorah on the Allingtown Green, will celebrate the first day of Hanukkah at sundown.
The lightings will mark the Jewish Festival of Lights, an eight-day commemoration of rededication of the Temple by the Maccabees after their victory over the Syrians.
The ceremonies, led by Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, will include a Jewish blessing by a local rabbi.
Rossi said the menorahs were recently refurbished by the Department of Public Works.
